Pharmacies in Humber and North Yorkshire can now assess and treat seven common conditions
Patients across Humber and North Yorkshire are now able to get treatment for seven common conditions at their high street pharmacy without needing to see a GP, as part of a major transformation in the way the NHS delivers care.

Almost 95% of pharmacies in the North East and Yorkshire region will be offering the ground-breaking initiative, with the health service making it easier and more convenient for people to access care.

Highly trained pharmacists will be able to assess and treat patients for sinusitis, sore throat, earache, infected insect bite, impetigo, shingles, and uncomplicated urinary tract infections in women (under the age of 65) without the need for an appointment or prescription.

The major expansion of pharmacy services will give the public more choice in where and how they access care, aiming to free up 10 million GP appointments a year.

News From Across the Partnership
National Director for Health Inequalities returns to Hull
Professor Bola Owolabi
It was a trip down Memory Lane for a very special visitor to Hull Royal Infirmary last week.

Professor Bola Owolabi, a practising GP and NHS England’s National Director for Health Inequalities, made a welcome return to the hospital where she worked as a junior house officer years ago.

But recalling her days on the gastro ward weren’t the main reason for her return to Hull; she had come to visit the Homeless Health Team which works within HRI and to learn about their work to support safe discharge for this patient group.

The visit was organised in partnership with the homeless charity, Pathway, and Modality Partnership, which is commissioned to provide the Homeless Health Service.
